Verathius Mischevangおだ たつや
»Hollow Life Begins:
Verathius didn't understand many things that came with being a Hollow. A hunger to devour souls and things drove him. He killed people who felt similar to him in the living world. This was something he could do rather easily as travelers were abundant. Fresh meat to devour and eat giving him strength. The stronger their spirit the more power he could obtain. But it didn't seem to be enough for him in the long run. He couldn't grasp what this situation was as he'd occasionally meet his own kind now. Those beings he once felt a darkness from he'd devour them also. Showing no discretion on who or what he'd devour. Even some Shinigami ended up becoming his meal at this point. Verathius couldn't contain his hunger as he began moving forward. Only when he fought enemies and killed did he feel a clarity of everything going on. He could see Ashlei more clearly when he killed someone. His life involved moving from place to place. Killing people slowly and building up his power as he went. He'd begun devouring Menos Grande of Gillian class even in his beginning. Using smarts and his pyrokinetic powers to keep going forward. When he ate these strong ones he grew closer to an image. Something he could find answers from more. Verathius didn't get the luxury of a happy life as a regular hollow. He was often feeding on Gillian class Menos as his target. This made him feel more unstable as he went on. It was like voices were trying to scream but something choked them. William lingered not allowing those within those souls he ate to speak.
It was like he put his foot on their neck and didn't let them. They didn't bother Verathius much as he increased his power transforming frequently into higher levels. The clarity of Ashlei became more so as he got further on the train. His power also seemed to allow him a continued growth in this world. The true advantage he held came down to the shape and use of fire he came up with. Verahtius was able to defend himself from those who'd be stronger normally. By using different types of Cero and fighting in ways few imagined. Killing his first Adjuchas before he ascended his rank was a feat he held. William's raw power and potential were their for Verathius to tap into. Meaning few of these week minded fools could handle him. Eating souls and fighting were all he did at this point to try and find clarity. His life went on for many years this way in the living lands. Fighting stressful battles over and over where death was certain. Being outnumbered and outgunned so often as a hollow.
This went on for years if not decades as he disappeared into the Forest of Menos. Killing and fighting almost constantly to feed on his enemies for that sense. It was such a long time without an end fighting different enemies. From Adjuchas to Shinigami he fought and killed them all using the burning powers. Shinigami though rare would get trapped on the other side with him. But something didn't seem noticeable to him at the time. He was a Vasto Lorde who'd made the top class. It was around this time one day he can't tell you how many years had passed of killing and feeding. He simply lost the desire to eat or kill people all that much anymore. At this moment reaching the peak of what he considered Hollow Evolution. Verathius only fought when someone challenged him. Often times only killing them with the fire that came off his body. Not really bothering to get involved in things beyond that. Leaving the Hidden Sections of the Forest didn't concern him. Hollows had often times been sent to capture him to die to him. He'd killed Arrancar who attempted it on occasion.
Verathius claimed they didn't have a clearly defined goal of what they were. Using his raw power he felt something drawing him towards a conclusion. As he'd reached a peak of his evolution he'd noticed hollows died around him from his presence. He couldn't contain himself anymore in this form and something had to change. He couldn't keep himself like this any longer and avoid the sensation of people. Hiding around here he caused fires and death just from his presence. Verathius wasn't a simple being one could easily define. Losing sense of himself only to regain it slowly as he'd spent so many decades and years fighting enemies. If they could even be called much more but prey at that point. What was the point of it all in the end? He saw some try to claim their way by defeating him every moment. Thinking they stood a chance till they got close and burst into flames. Would he encounter some form of natural challenge in this world again? It felt as though this world was uninteresting.
Verathius earned a reputation as the King of the Forest. Known to remain hidden and often times not bother. Shinigami came to challenge him after going too far on occasion. Only to die without realizing the mistake they'd made. His cero was extremely powerful at this time capable of doing large-scale damage. He was even noted to fight with them on occasion against enemies. William still lending Verathius his strength to use at this moment. William had seen and considered what came and decided to wait for it all out. He began studying quietly from within as Verathius would become a body he could someday be part of. Studying the energy and its flow from within this Vasto Lorde body. The true nature of the spiritual pressure Verathius had belonging to him. Without even knowing how far off he was he realized another push was needed. This form was incomplete for the power he'd gone for. Hollows could evolve even further was the belief that he held.
Despite knowing this form didn't come easy or without things brought upon it. William decided it was time to nudge Verathius again. While the other form slept he gave him visions and tried to speak with him. Asking him if he'd forgotten about Ashlei and protecting her. How could this weak incomplete form protect the girl who died? This dream set him off to evolve once more as his mask burnt off and his transformation began. Ascending into a status known as Arrancar naturally without aide from anything. That was a feat Verathius accomplished again through sheer determination. The realization he wasn't chasing his goal anymore brought it back. His mask breaking brought him to a new stage past that of his current form. As his body changed again and found this new form. Verathius found reason and seemed to discover more. This possible outcome was only brought out due to another being. He'd spent an unknown amount of time as a Vasto Lorde. He'd made small trips into Hueco Mundo to kill challengers occasionally.
But now he'd lead his Nest of sorts and go find answers in this place. The Forest of Menos had been a haven which he wore like a blanket. Never deciding to spread his wings into the Deserts of Hueco Mundo. Not wishing to venture to the Nest of Sosuke Aizen during his time. He avoided that place since Vasto Lorde was sought by him. He'd killed Arrancar as a Vasto defeating them as needed. But finally leaving this place felt nostalgic. He couldn't figure out what drew him from the place he'd long called home. But Verathius left here unaware of how time had flown forward. How many hundreds of years had gone by though William had been well aware. Knowing his outer self just didn't see it and sought to defend his sisters. Not knowing the outcome beyond Ashlei was a problem. Though William had concluded she'd likely become like him. His sister was a gifted jewel after all and capable of such. The search for her would begin now in earnest, Verathius could serve his purpose.
William wouldn't fade or disappear into the background completely. He'd stay and observe till the time was right. Letting Verathius wield his body and power as he liked for now. The two wouldn't become whole just yet as the time wasn't right yet. Not everything had been made known to him as of yet. He'd find Ashlei faster then he thought as he'd encounter her in a way. Though she'd leave him with a duty that would mark his Arrancar years as dull. Verathius didn't have an eventful life outside of fighting enemies and intruders. That was his entire day and life to keep things from bothering Ashlei as an Arrancar. She'd even forgotten him to the point leaving him there for hundreds of years. Not returning to claim him till much later. But those years are important as William got a sense of scope from the world beyond. Seeing each race and things that could conclude his choices of what not was going on. Verathius would act as the Bulwark and do what he always wanted until the truth was unveiled. »The Arrancar Tale:
He wouldn't take long to find his sister who made a choice. Her brother would be a keeper to one of the entrances. Verathius decided to do this as a Bulwark and keep the trouble away from his sister. He did this duty for decades and years without question. Fighting hollows who came to encounter him at this location. He'd been left here with a single purpose and the number of enemies he'd encounter. They were many kinds and types from every race. The question was what did William do during this time period of sitting and combat. This persona didn't come out or see a need to involve himself. He'd resigned himself to staying away as he observed the energy types. Iramasha were encountered among other things. Demons even had tried to trouble Ashlei at this point. But the Bulwark would remain strong and break the advance. This was one way none would pass as he remained here till even clothing he wore began to decay.
Fabric simply wasn't made to last this test of time without running into trouble. Questions could often be raised if interesting beings or things came to Verathius. The problem was his father's voice still rung his ears making his obsession absolute. He focused on doing Ashlei's orders to the best of his skill. Nothing allowed him to deviate from that purpose. Fighting often and developing a fighting style that could be defined as brutal. Verathius utilized his raw power in each fight dispatching enemies. Never realizing just how strong he was when he did things. Time could pass forward before she came and he'd begin a pathway that took him somewhere else. It had gotten to a point here that Verathius couldn't understand who he was. Why he fought and what purpose he served past that of a Bulwark. But one day something happened interesting and Ashlei remembered him. She came and collected her brother putting a show of emotion on. Perhaps she did care in her own twisted way of it.
But his next place was within K-World during the time of Starrk there. But little happened for him here as he again became idle. Nothing seemed to be drawing or bringing him a sense of peace these days. William got to encounter those within K-World and see them for what they were. They were beings of every walk including some humans similar to himself in those days. But he wondered how much they knew about the life he'd lead in this time period. Verathius's other sister would reach out when Ashlei vanished. The Bulwark's purpose was shifted to his other sister at that moment. Defending her from all attackers and trouble. He'd been placed as Primera for a small amount of time. His sister held some business elsewhere and during this time he and Moonie would fight. This fight was meaningful for a few reasons. Verathius's core had been shaken and awoken finally. Though the match ended in a draw between the two of them. It was an exciting clash which left epic conclusion upon the land of Poland.
From here Verathius was made Segunda and would follow his sister's lead. Showing up in Australia, Malaysia, Iceland, and the Moon battles before anything happened. He'd undergone transformations after winning in these locations. Verathius had begun to change forms as William decided the time to begin was near. He began making subtle changes to Verathius's body and giving him ideas. It wasn't yet his time to come out. He'd been watching and predicting the outcome as they began. Demonkind since Verathius's arrival within the Shadow Fall had been the leading force. The Hollow's had fallen far since the days of Aizen and perhaps even further. The change didn't seem to be coming quickly on the horizon. Those battles helped build Verathius as a figure to be respected. He was a man of talent and capable but missing that driving force. So he remained the Segunda trying to break his shell more and more. Reaching for what William wanted him to find above all else. But someone noticed Verathius becoming more detached from Shadow's Fall.
Kiriel the brother of Mana decided to try and handle it in Hueco Mundo. Happening shortly after meeting Barragan and taking his leave. Verathius ended up in a battle with Kiriel that wasn't easy. He'd been pushed back further more and more. Trying to find his way back in when a familiar voice spoke up. "Time's up, it's my turn now." That voice seemed to come from within as something happened. The battle despite him losing it ended rather abruptly with William killing Kiriel. It wasn't a simple feat or an easy one for that matter. Kiriel was a strong foe with much knowledge of Verathius. But his undoing was not knowing William from the previous. William's body had changed and made him appear much like Ashlei again. The body altered it's finally time to fit his power and allow him to fight without restraint. It was time to begin moving forward as Verathius Mischevang was complete. The time of the Hollow Monochary had begun in full and the King of the Forest was done waiting.
»High Heat Resistance:
William always had a strange tolerance from the flames. Claiming they are a bit warm often causing him some discomfort. This heat protection or rather resilience to the flames and such things have a minor use. But it's an effective tool in the larger sum of things. He'd gotten quite a bit of practice against fellow fire based users. Fighting some who'd attempted to admonish him and claim they had a higher heat. None of this truly mattered in the long run of it. After all, the heat was a meaningless thing after a while as the ground burned. What truly mattered was how one utilized the heat. This power doesn't hold much use outside of him being able to withstand high heats. He can handle high-level explosions of city busters and such.»Immense Spiritual Pressure
Verathius is someone known to be strong despite appearances. Flaws and what not aside it's been noted some weak beings perished before his spiritual pressure. He's able to put out enough to pressure weak Captain-class Shinigami. This doesn't mean that he is able to do this to everyone but most people do get the sense he is strong. Verathius has shown the power to kill weak hollows below him just by letting them near him. This is a feat a few others have accomplished with relative ease despite his age. Verathius is a warrior tested on the fields of battle who's seen each place and location. Verathius has built ambitions and such that slowly have come from his own power. Moonie and he once held a clash of raw power and Verathius got to come out of his cage more. The soft nudges out of the world that held them captive was something he could truly enjoy. Weak enemies provided so little amusement. »Expert Combatant
Verathius spent every moment of his life fighting without a doubt. He's seen fighting styles from the sword to the spear. Seen different takes on multiple things few others have. His martial skills are considerable and something to respect. He's seen multiple styles of cqc that few use. Close Quarter Combat for those wondering is a method of extremely capable fighting. The hollows and Arrancar rarely display much interest in this form of fighting. But he believes it's needed for someone like him who exclusively fights with his fists often. Verathius did enjoy using pole weapons and swords for a time before moving away from them. Fighting with your hands lets you feel out an enemy and connect with them. It's something he learned as he fought over the years against enemies. Every person has a style that they struggle within a degree. Speed, power, or perhaps something of a mix. Understanding what type of power you wield is essential to survival. It's something we all must come to grips with when we step on a battlefield. Verathius spent many of his seven hundred and fifteen years fighting. While William studied and watched building an understanding of combat. It was clear that he could grow and develop many things. Fighting and building an understanding of the world they lived in was important. Combat is something that can be defined by strategy and understanding situations. What sort of enemy are you against what moves will be useful in a realistic sense. These are considerations that a hardened veteran must show to a degree. For example, only a novice would focus on pure power without taking into account a bulky body is hard to move. Some examples if this does exist and understanding your limits is important. Verathius has spent a time and study of almost everything to do with war and fighting. To a point where even the Danava of War had been caught off guard by the sheer experience.
Verathius is a man who's lived in war and combat beyond anything else that one could anticipate. Power isn't something important or perfect even among hollows. They respect power above all else and often time's kneel before it. Instead of being themselves most of them bend the knee. Unwilling to focus on the things of importance to them. This is something that few people seem to of realized in their culture. Just because they have power doesn't mean experience surpassing your own. Knowledge is just as important as power along with understanding. These are tools which shape and define Verathius. It's what makes him a complete being past the former figure. He doesn't showcase the same problems and weaknesses of his former self. That isn't to say he doesn't have a weakness as he has plenty of them. He is simply aware of what they are and how best to cover them. That is the key element in battle. To make your weakness a strength that way few can exploit it in any way.
Now this density isn't that hard to create or even manipulate. This acts as a fire would and spreads as one would expect. Covering area and zones with relative ease and cover. As much heat as he puts into this he can cause quite the destructive zone. Verathius isn't too keen on caring about the land or locations as he once was. Now, this doesn't act like normal fire obviously though if he adds his heat to it will. It simply moves and act's like it while allowing him to create and control the flames for other needs. Verathius prides himself on more strategic fighting now that William and he are one. By adding these things to the mix he is able to alter and play with his cero's even after casting them. The main thing to understand is he is able to create different kinds based on his desires. Now while not many moves have been listed it can be noted that Verathius fights viciously when using his power.»Cero Halo
This is a newer technique he came up with. Putting his hand out he assembles a cero in his palm rapidly spinning it in a circle. As the energy begins to form into a shape similar to a circle. He raises his hand into the air releasing a massive explosion that can wipe out a small city. This attack is potent and uses its momentum charged up by spinning to release a devastating amount of kinetic force. By releasing the energy all at once it extends outwards. Though this is one use as he can sharpen the edge and turn it into a razor-sharp chakram thrown at enemies. It allows for a multiple purpose use as he tends to decide things can be done in multiple ways. Verathius is a specialist in this regard to creating new cero as he goes. Even going so far as to develop new ones. Development and building are a key element to what allows him to form these disks. Now they are bright and can be avoided but the rotation and spinning can cut most things. Though some can shrug them off though they will explode, the damage is based on his cero skill. This can be used twice max and will drain additional energy using the two.»Poise Zero Cero
Anastasius does not require to extend his hand or use such forms. He is able to fire Cero from anywhere on his body. Not really needing the typical fighting pose or form. Nor does it take him long to generate them. As he is able to mainpulate the energy fairly quickly. Having a very fast load and fire though not strange given William. INheriting his skills allowed him to compile them all into a singular facet. He combines them seamlessly into a single use that made the most sense. Very quick cero generation and being able to make them anywhere he chooses on his body. though he does admit he isn't quite at other levels of people who came before him. He is able to make the cero and shoot them rather neatly. His idea for cero did implode once William's better traits were brought in. The fold being complete did make a lot of possible outcomes for cero based techniques. Finding different ways to blast people. »Bala Saber
Instead of releasing the common Bala he extends his index and middle finger outward. Making a swiping motion as a fast traveling bala extends from his digits. This cuts instead of simply exploding like normal ones. Allowing him to release a rather potent technique that moves very quickly. Though it's not able to cut through absolutely anything. It can be blocked by strong and fast enough people may dodge it. The speed of it is tied to his cero skill. Higher he is the faster it is, though it is never completely unavoidable. As someone with enough strength or reiatsu could easily block it. Or even a fast person could avoid it depending on the deployment method. Though it is a shame he cannot state it to be perfect as it is merely a bala. Never quite reaching a proper skill level for his liking. His energy output hadn't really reached a peak cell yet. Believing perhaps another fight or two may be in order here.»Cero Disparo de dispersión
Extending his hand outwards a large cero quickly forms before being shot outwards now. Upon reaching a set location the Cero will shatter into a hundred miniature ceros. Covering the area in the small tiny orbs that will explode upon contact. Calling it Cero Scattershot, he's able to mainpulate and control each small cero. Though the explosive force of them is cut in half due to the size of them. This makes it a technique more for trapping someone. If someone is smart enough even lower tier could easily go through them. Making it merely a walk through the field for some. Some might discern the patter and merely vanish away. It should be noted upon reaching master this jumps to one thousand miniature ceros. Deflecting them or detonating them is also an option in terms of avoiding it. Many avenues exist to find a path out of this minefield set where he wants. Nothing is set in clear as even strong enough energies may overpower them and blow them away.»Cero Ricochet
By firing a cero he is able to have it bounce off objects. Often times without changing the appearance of the cero itself. Making it appear normal until it bounces off something behind someone. The cero is linked to him by means of energy which he manipulates. Allowing him to control the bounces and number of times. The speed of the bounces and other things are matters of his cero skill. The more skilled he is at the form and usage of them the faster they will go. Taking into account he is elite following them for someone who meets's the prerequisites to do so will not be a problem. In fact, this cero is as strong as his others with little difference between it and others. Only that like a pinball it bounces a number of times in a machine. The world has become his machine in this essence he is using the technique to create a rather potent attack. Now as stated previously avoiding it is entirely possible even taking it for those able to do so.
A tight compressed Cero the size of a tennis ball encased inside of a thin hollowed out Cero that has a flexible manner allowing to bounce upon objects that hold no reishi. Upon the Cero colliding with reishi, the outer Cero breaks detonating the compressed Cero into an explosion. »Sacrifice Cero
Covering his body in the cero he slowly begins to radiate his power around it. His influence as he brings his hand outwards. This does damage his body depending on how long he charges it. One post is slightly damaged, Two posts are moderately damaged, three posts are severely damaged. The longer he charges it though and more of his blood mixes in. The more damage output this cero will have. Trade must be made in order to accomplish strength. Nothing begets nothing, everything, begets everything. That is the mentality of the being before you who protects his family through sacrifice. By putting himself on the line and observing the world. He doesn't run towards the fight unless willing to sacrifice himself. He can sacrifice entire body parts in order to enhance his technique. But this again comes at a price of him using the power of sacrifice and so on to empower his techniques.»Cero Line
Firing the cero from his hand it extends and even if it should miss it's intended target keeps going. Drawing a line across the air and creating a path of energy that can explode upon his liking. This line as the name is rather literally would be similar to taking a sharpie and drawing a line. This pulsating energy can be made to explode or continue chasing his target. Boxing off their movement as he does so with this technique in his storehouse. Though it's one of many he doesn't care for how tedious it gets later to control. As he needs to not cross the lines or the entire thing will explode. Which depending on how long he's drawn it in his five-meter range. It will simply wipe out a good portion of the area he is in akin to a mortar shell. Or a bunker buster hitting the city it is aiming at. On the other hand, disarming it or getting out of its range is an option as well in any case.»Cero Repulse
Covering himself in the familiar glow of a cero he releases a shockwave outwards from his body. By releasing a wall of cero that fires away from him. Basically acting as a method to push people around him away. Those struck will suffer damage traditional to what Ceros tend to pack in this case. Making it relatively strong defensively tool for him to use. By adding this to his techniques he's made up for his Hierro losing some luster and shine. Though this did once belong to Verathius to any extent. Remaking it to fit his needs was little trouble. However, this isn't an endlessly expanding wall of a cero. It only goes three meters from him and blasts away things that got close. Allowing him to clear the chess board if only a bit. As stated hitting it will cause an outward explosion due to how it's structured. It doesn't explode inward only towards the outside. Making it very difficult to use the idea of blowing him up with his own move.»Cero Cannon
Wrapping the cero energy around his body and twisting it at accelerating rates. He then fires the blast warping it into a spin making an extremely powerful blast. The explosion of force is equal to that of the shinigami's Hadō 88. The power and force generated are well on par with this kido when performed by an elite of kido. So thus the move does fit into his tool belt rather comfortably in this regard. Making more use of his techniques within the kido field William had drawn up. Getting the best of both worlds did help him in the long run. For that, he owes Ulv a rather large debt of gratitude. As she allowed him to finally become a single person. No longer ripped apart of his best attributes. Though does acknowledge losing the Hierro was costly. Thus why he is developing something to clean it up. To make himself a more potent figure when it comes to the Espada. Developing many cero techniques even being able to influence them as he goes. »Cero of Destruction
Clapping both hands together he draws in massive amounts of energy into the center. Creating a cero before more ceros generate rapidly in that location. The energy is condensed over and over again. The move can be charged as well for each time he is left to his own devices it grows more potent. But this cero upon reaching two posts can wipe out half a city. Even when charged by an elite 1 tier, though it will tire them out very quickly. And likely lead to them collapsing upon the ground with nothing left. When using this move five turns is the limit before the cero starts breaking your own body. Anything stronger starts to damage the user turning it into a monster of a condensed cero. Combining it into a massive explosion hard to dodge even for the user. That's right this puppy can bite back on its owner and cause some serious pain. This could, in theory, kill the owner if they aren't careful like being hit by that much condense cero explosions will do some major damage. Avoiding it is entirely possible as the ball is tiny and colored yellow easy to spot. He'll generally shoot it towards them though it takes it longer than average to travel. Meaning getting away from the blast is one hundred percent possible. Because once it hits depending on the post spent building it up, thousands of ceros may be unleashed at once.
0-5 can destroy Cuba at full power, while 1-2 and 1-1 can destroy entire mountains. With 1-5 being able to destroy an entire city.
By using a very finite method he's able to sense the movement of spiritual pressure or other such energies within the body. This allows him to fully gauge what someone is going to do as though reading the future. This, however, isn't how the power works nor is it remotely close. Due to his expert experience as a battle combatant, he can read combat moves by the flow of energy. Knowing how someone is going to act and to what degree within it. As one may expect the length of this is tied into his Perquisa level allowing him to detect more things at a time. Extremely precise and allowing for rather reliable counter attacks. He is able to use this power to frighteningly strong applications. Able to read muscle movements and body movements when in combat. This allows him to detect things that are going to happen and react accordingly. It makes him a difficult one to catch off guard or unaware. As he's specialized in a very strange power that no other previous Espada had. It can be noted that none before him had gone to the degree that he did in this. To truly use this power you need a lifetime of battle experience and mastery of it. Now, just because he knows something does not mean he can react to it or has an answer. If someone unleashes an attack too powerful for him to manage. Then obviously ain't nothing that knowing about it does. The movement and flow of energy through the body is the key if one can mask it they are likely to be unaffected by this technique or skill in general. Making it then a question of how much more can he grow. »Long Sight
This power is able to detect the movement of spiritual pressure through the brain to assess the emotion. This allows him to be more sensitive and notice things despite being further away from him. Reading emotions and gaining an understanding of the situation rather quickly. Despite his considering of the Espada as kin to him. He does not turn this power on them unless forced. This combined with Future's Requiem allows him to predict things. Almost like seeing a future of possible outcomes. But instead of that, it is more akin to a high level of energy detection. This power's range is one hundred yards. Though he can fine tune it and lower the range when desired. To focus it on a set area and make sure of things. This is something he discovered himself to be good at. While none wanted Verathius or William for their skill sets. He's turned himself into something else born anew. His period of doubt and such or putting himself in other people's way is finished now.
This is the main thing Verathius is infamous for having. Special markings are similar to tattoos where his Hierro has grown thick. He is able to move this around and concentrate it in sections of his body for better defensive capabilities. This allows him to take shots most with great Hierro cannot. It's due to focusing in an area and controlling the point of absorbing the blow to pinpoint accuracy. Now it must be understood this isn't a small mark or something invisible unless under clothing. Verathius is able to control the expansion of black skin like substances. Allowing him to manipulate the points and even use it offensively to an extent. This allows him to make his blows harder on the edge of the knuckle by making his hierro stronger. Verathius can thus cause better impact through his powers. The Tribal can be used as energy conductors also. This allows for more creative and inspired uses of his powers. He's able to set his very Hierro on fire despite not being in his release form.
Verathius has completed this special form of Hierro allowing for a rather interesting effect for those who wished to observe such a thing. It acts in harmony with his other Hierro based skills. Allowing for growth and development from the user as they progress. Verathius isn't sure he is the only one capable of this kind of Hierro. Though he claims it can go a step further which makes the markings expand across his body. Allowing him to fight in a form similar to a release stage. This form is known as Tribal Ressurection by him, the effect of this form is rather simplistic. It will be listed below however to give a better understanding. It's an almost purely combined offensive and defensive power. Verathius is well regarded as the Bulwark by many Hollows. Known for the sheer levels of punishment he can endure from foes. Making him a difficult man to lock down or stop as the Bulwark surges ever forward.»Hierro Magnums
Both of his hands are coated in three times the thickness of Hierro. Allowing him to hit much harder and block weapons. His hands are in a thickness of Hierro that makes it easy to tell his body's Hierro grew thicker in that location. Making him more dangerous in that spot when it comes down to how his Hierro Functions. Punching them can very well injure a person who is ill-prepared for such. People have broken their hands and many things against his hands. The coat of thickness goes from the elbow to his hands. Making that area a danger zone for those interested in fighting him. He is able to effectively defend with a Hierro based Hand to hand style he's developed. Using his body as a weapon to fight against stronger enemies. He's earned a reputation for these as well. Being struck by them is similar to being hit by an explosion of force. As his raw strength is increased by the hardness of the blow's he releases.
